Lessons from women on the frontline -Trisha

Trisha de Borchgrave was born in Paris, France, to an American interior designer mother and a Belgian journalist father. 

Raised in Mallorca, Spain, she was educated at London’s Francis Holland, Clarence Gate, with a BA in French and History of Art from Bristol University.

She ran her own interior design and decorative art business for eighteen years, first in Oxford and later in Washington DC. 

She switched to becoming a fine art artist with exhibitions in Europe and the US until she switched again to writing in 2015.

Today she is a current affairs writer, published in print and online media, including Chatham House International Affairs Magazine, The World Today, Arab News, Tortoise Media, Huffington Post, ABC Spain and The Big Smoke Australia/US, The Independent, Vogue Magazine.

She lives in London with her husband and has two grown daughters.

Trisha has published extensively for diverse sources of media; her interviews with women experts in their fields - with a Taliban negotiator, a nuclear investigator in Ukraine, a corruption expert in Afghanistan, and an Asian transgender digital minister, among others - reveal that women's thinking is heroic and innately connected to the impact that their work has on the broader world, with surprising insights.

We will have a sit-down dinner with 6 wines, starting at 18:30 on Monday 26th of June
